Default Is there any truth in this?

I just read this on another forum I am on and don't believe it to be true. Can anybody give me an instance in which it happens?

Dont know if it bothers you or not but buying guns in quantity like that (depending on the make and models) from a dealer, will make the transaction be scrutinized by the ATF or local law enforcement. Whenever you buy multiple handguns or certain long guns, the dealer MUST send a letter to the ATF and one to local law enforcement. Whether or not they look into it is up to them but it may draw unwanted attention to you.

Believe that's true on borders states as far as atf goes. Some states have additional regulations on reporting possibly.

If it's legal why should it bother you? Big deal he bought 3 guns, he probably already has huge collection anyway, what's three more guns.

What are you talking about? Is there any truth in what? You read what on another forum? The only thing I see in your post is that someone bought 6K rounds of ammo and they're going to buy 3 more guns. What's the problem?
It's true that if an an unlicensed person acquires two or more pistols or revolvers or any combination of pistols or revolvers totaling two or more at one time or during five consecutive business days the FFL has to submit a form to the ATF but how is that relevant here?

Wow, I guess I have to spell it out pretty well for some dense people here.
It there any truth in a multiple gun purchase requiring a letter to the ATF? I know that there was an attempt to require reporting on border states, but I don't have information that this was in a border state.
For those who ask "why do I care?" it is because I want to have knowledge in this. I think people should be able to buy as many guns as they can afford. Sheesh. I don't know about this forum anymore, it used to be a helpful place, but now seems like a den of jerks just wanting to blast some one.

Yes there is truth in it. We had to fill one out the other day because my friend bought three handguns from us at one time.

fireguy asked a question which is a legit question. contrary to popular beliefs many people actualy don't know every law regarding every issue of firearms. Don't be an ass when responding to questions that people ask in this forum that is what we are here for, not for your personnel entertainment.

As far as the question goes, my understanding is that multiple sales of more then 2 of any semi-auto larger then .22 cal and that has a detachable mag. in the 4 boarder states (Ca, Az, NM,TX) must be reported to the ATF. Here where I live nothing is reported even if I buy 10 AK-47's all I do is fill out the 4473 and pay my money and take them home.

You can buy any gun and any quantity at most TX gunshows. Especially those not near a major metroplex (DFW)

It's older news and affects gun dealers in CA, AZ, NM and TX. I believe it is based on "demand letters" issued by the ATF. Here's a link to NRA-ILA with a whole host of articles explaining it in detail - http://www.nraila.org/search.aspx?s=demand%20letters
